COLOMBO, June 5 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan shares fell for a third straight session on Wednesday to their lowest close in nearly three weeks, as investors booked profits in blue-chip companies like John Keells Holdings and Commercial Bank of Ceylon in an overbought market.

However, foreign investors bought shares on a net basis for a 19th straight session. The bourse saw a net foreign inflow of 314 million rupees, extending year-to-date inflows to 14.76 billion rupees.

The main stock index fell 0.42 percent, or 26.82 points, to 6,422.84, the lowest close since May 17.

Foreign investors accounted for around 52.8 percent of the day's turnover of 818.3 million rupees ($6.47 million), less than this year's daily average of 1.04 billion rupees.

"Consolidation is continuing and the market is taking time for the next run. We expect the market to be at these levels before gaining," said a stockbroker asking not to be named.

He expects the market to rise with more foreign buying after a road show, which is being held in Dubai with the participation of top market and regulatory officials to attract foreign inflows into the bourse.

Shares in conglomerate John Keells Holdings fell 0.82 percent to 279.40 rupees, while Commercial Bank of Ceylon lost 0.56 percent to 123.30 rupees.

The market's 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) was still in overbought territory, at 72.992 on Wednesday and has been above the upper neutral level of 70 since April 16, Thomson Reuters data showed.

The rupee ended firmer at 126.43/45 per dollar from

Tuesday's close of 126.50/52 on thin volume of inflows from remittances and stocks-related transactions, dealers said.

"The ASPI ended lower for a third consecutive day amid a drop in activity levels dominated by trades on LLUB which accounted for over 30% of market turnover. The market also saw crossings on DIAL and CTC," John Keells Stock Brokers said.

There was a net foreign inflow of Rs. 314.22 with purchases of Rs. 432.33 million and sales of Rs. 118.12 million.

JKH edged down to Rs.279.90 on nearly 0.2 million shares traded between Rs.278.50 and Rs.281.50, Rs.1.80 below the previous close.

Other block trades included Dialog where slightly over 4.7 million shares were done at Rs.9.30 contributing Rs.43.8 million to turnover and a 34,884 shares Ceylon Tobacco done at Rs.1,000 contributing Rs.34.9 million to turnover.

Brokers said that foreign buying was seen in Ceylon Tobacco and Commercial Bank with Ceylon Tobacco also seeing 18,603 shares done on the floor between Rs.981 and Rs.1,000 closing 10 cents up at Rs.999.60 generating a turnover of Rs.18.6 million.

Commercial Bank (voting) closed 60 cents down at Rs123.40 on over 0.3 million shares done between Rs.122.50 and Rs.124.50 generating a turnover of Rs.42.5 million.

Haycarb gained Rs.10.20 to close at Rs.211.70 on over 0.1 million shares done between Rs.205 and Rs.215 contributing Rs.25.8 million to turnover while Tokyo (voting) closed Rs.1.10 up at Rs.27.10 on nearly 1.3 million shares traded between Rs.26 and Rs.27.30 contributing Rs.23.3 million to turnover.

Piramal Glass closed flat at Rs.6.70 trading between Rs.6.70 and Rs.6.80 with 2.4 million shares transacted.
